Earworms has produced a brilliant program unlike anything else on the market. Learning a language by audiobook can be mind-numbing and repetitive, but Earworms takes up the challenge and blows everything else to hell. Setting languages to music is brilliant, I'm suprised it hasn't been done before. Chants and songs and stories are universal, they are mankind's most ancient forms of education and communication (and prevention). Pattern recognition,inflection and tone come effortlessly when learning this way. It's like immersing yourself in the culture for a whole hour.
The printed guide is super useful. Reading the words while listening to them and repeating them outloud dramatically improved my recall (I didn't use the guide the first week, for some reason actually seeing the words imprinted them on my brain). After using the guide I'd say my recall shot up to about %80.
I'm continually amazed by the rapidity with which I'm learning from these programs (in just 3 weeks!). As I drift off to sleep whole phrases float through my mind, unbidden. Even my step-daughter thinks Earworms is rad. I've told all my traveling friends about it, though I've only used Italian V1 and 2 thus far. I'd suggest using this program to supplement your language learning classes, or in conjunction with the standard audio lessons. Surprise yourself.
